Things I wish they'd showcased at New York Fashion Week

I'm pretty much a style icon.  A fashion maven if you will.

Fifty-something women all over the Midwest look to me for inspiration about what to wear...and then they don't wear it because they know I don't have the first clue about fashion (or low waisted pants.)

As you know, New York Fashion Week just ended, which means all the new styles for Spring 2014 premiered.  Yes, I know, it seems strange that Fall Fashion Week showcases spring fashions.

It doesn't make sense, but neither does Jessica Simpson being taken seriously as a fashion designer.  There are just some mysteries that will never be solved.

My friend Gansavoort is a fabulous fashion editor in New York City, and although she didn't explicitly invite me to Fashion Week this year, I definitely took her subliminal hints that she wanted me there.

"Please don't think of coming to Fashion Week" and "I'll lose my job if I'm seen with you" were just decoy texts.  I  know she wishes I could make it.

Next time, Gansavoort.  Next time.

Since I wasn't there, I'm not sure what fashions were showcased this year, but I have an idea of what fashions weren't showcased.  Here are a few things I know didn't make the runway, although I wish they would have.

1.  Pajama Jeans

When is the fashion world going to catch on to this amazing invention?

They're pajamas....that look like jeans!

This is pure and simple comfortable brilliance and nothing more.

2.  Muffin tops

I realize this isn't an outfit, per se, although it's an accessory that accompanies every one of my ensembles.

I'm sure not only did none of the fashion models sport muffin tops, none of them have ever savored the delicious goodness of devouring 5 muffin tops in under 3 minutes.

Come to think of it, maybe that's why they don't have muffin tops.

Wanna read more?  Of course you do.  Here's the rest of the post.  It's equally as awesome.  ;-)
